... town with a famous bridge, Stari Most. The original bridge was built in the 1500's but unfortunately that was bombed in 1993 during the Croatian war, so it has now been rebuilt as a replica. It is very pretty and believe it or not brave locals and some brave travellers jump off the bridge falling a staggering 24m to the icy waters below.

They had to use local parks for cemeteries as they had no cars, no ...

The Croat side even has a large football stadium and they have expelled the Bosnians from entering it except for one game a year and even then, the Croats ensure that the Bosnians of Mostar understand they are unwelcome there.
The next part of our tour was a lot lighter and more fun. We visited ...
